#Novichok is not a weapon that can be manufactured by non-state actors… #Russia has provided no credible explanation… Therefore, we have no alternative but to conclude that the #Russian state was responsible [for a chemical weapons attack on my country].
This was an attack on #UK soil… #Russia is failing to comply with the conditions of the Chemical Weapons Convention…

Let us turn to the part of the CWC that #Russia is not talking about - Russia did not declare #Novichok & is therefore in serious breach of the CWC.
This was a reckless act… #Russia officials have repeatedly threatened those they consider traitors, before & after March 4 attack.

Russia has a history of political assassinations, interfering in other countries & a total disregard for civilian life.

The best way to gauge the Kremlin’s complicity is to consider that its involvement is directly proportionate to the number of conspiracy theories being floated by #Russia’s state media (e.g. #MH17). With respect to #Skripal, numerous “alternative story plots” are already in play.
Russia’s state media #Skripal conspiracy theory No.1:
“Accidental exposure”
Porton Down, where the Brits were experimenting with the same types of nerve agents, is located next door to where Skripal and his daughter were found.
